Don't Compartmentalize Your Faith

Faith for the Rest of the Week


There is an increasing cultural pressure to see religion isolated to places of worship. While Christians are called to resist compartmentalizing their faith, many operate under the false assumption that a divided life brings comfort. Eric Metaxas offers a joyful alternative, namely, a holistic life that displays the convictions of the Christian faith both inside and outside of the Sunday morning service. 

Eric is the author of four New York Times Bestsellers, including Seven Men: And the Secret of Their Greatness and Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy, which was named “Book of the Year” by the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA) and appeared on numerous 2010 “Book of the Year” lists. He is also the host of the Eric Metaxas Show, a daily radio program in 120 cities, and the co-host of BreakPoint, a daily radio program that provides a Christian perspective on current news and trends to over 8 million estimated listeners.

Listen as Eric highlights the value of living out your Christian faith in the workplace and the world at large.


Eric talked about some of the reasons behind the constitutional principles of exercising religious faith in the workplace. Does your business, or the company you work for, share these values? Why or why not?
